September Shoes is a visually evocative, lyrical play about four people in search of redemption. On a visit to their childhood home in the desert town of Dolores, Gail and Alberto, a middle-aged couple, struggle to come to terms with the past, including Gail's relationship with her Aunt Lily and the accidental death of Alberto's sister, Ana, 30 years before. Two local residents, Huilo, a cemetery groundsman, and Cuki, a hotel maid, deal with their own losses in unusual ways. Slowly, each of their heart-wrenching tales comes to light until, with gorgeous simplicity, all four realize that they are inextricably bound together.

Media Reviews"A haunting story." -The Rochester Daily News
"According to alternative therapies, there can be many windows into the soul—the iris, the palm, the foot. In José Cruz González's deeply moving September Shoes, a cleaning woman named Cuki can look into your soul by looking deep into the sole—of your shoe… The strength of González's script is in his creation and intersection of…damaged, palpable characters, all of whom must now deal with their pasts in order to move forward…Through the center of [the] desert runs an impossibly narrow highway that splits this landscape in two like a broken heart…And so all roads must lead back to this desert road, where Ana awaits to lead one and all down a new road to forgiveness." -The Denver Post
